3.Ripcord

QAD is the way to go in my opinion. Full containment drop away. Ripcord would be next on my list but I like the QAD better.

I love my ripcord. QAD is very nice too but the only thing that scares me from it was my cousin put one on his bow and it wouldnt drop down every time, and when it did the rest wouldnt fall fast enough so he was having fletch contact so he switched to the ripcord and didnt have any problems. Maybe it was just a bad rest because I havent heard of anyone else with that problem.

#1. Off the shelf. wink

#2. "Cusion/Plunger" style.

Can you tell I shoot a Recurve with fingers? grin

I have the trophy taker full containment. I have never had problems with it.

I have 2 trophy takers a limbdriver and a trophy ridge dropzone on my bows the only one I will not recommend is the drop zone their are a few design flaws where the arrow might not sit in the same place and play in the bar that raises the arrow

I planned on getting the trophy taker, but I went with the ripcord. I love it. When I got a new bow last year, I got another ripcord. Its been very reliable.

Ripcord here too. Not one issue with mine in three years of use on my Switchback XT.

I am in favor of the QAD. I really like the full containment for hunting situations. Have had no issues.

I've had a Vital Bowgear Kaz-away on my last two bows and I've really been happy with that rest.

Thanks gang. Will probably check out Ripcord and Quad. As for the W Biscuit, they work good but raise h*** on your fletchings.

The whisker bisquit was a good rest to learn on. Now it is the Ripcord all the way!

I started on a whisker but now moved onto a Trophy Ridge Dropaway. I wanted a drop away but wanted it enclosed but I do like the Trophy Ridge products

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
